Ep: 234 – Lions & Packers An Official Mess ft. Dean Blandino – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Fox Sports Rules Analyst Dean Blandino. After this week’s officiating debacle in Green Bay, Lions fans have a lot of questions and need answers. We take your calls and questions to help shed light on what happened. We also talk about what needs to be fixed and how to affect the situation as fans.

Detroit Lions Podcast Finds The Tattle Tale

Had you heard the news that David Bakhtiari did some tattling (his words) on Trey Flowers which resulted in two terrible penalty calls? As a result we also spend a bit of time discussing how players chirping at officials may affect their calls on the field. Dean also explains the review process works for evaluating officials. Every play, grading, demotions, drug tests, and even firings.

Dean also opens up about the one thing he would have changed if he went back in time to his job with the NFL. He opens up with a really interesting answer that is worth the price of admission on its own. Chris’s answer on the other hand, not so interesting.
